Trials for entry to Colne Amateur Swimming Club are usually held on the 1st Thursday of every month from February to November, except August due to holidays.

Non-Swimmers and under 8s

6:15pm Small Pool


7:30pm Large Pool

Assessment of skills will be made and lane allocations will be offered depending upon availability. If there is no space currently available, then that swimmer will be placed upon the waiting list.

Non-swimmers should be able to float on both front and back and be able to put their face into the water. Having less than this ability makes it more difficult to teach the child to swim as we do not have provision for one to one.

There is no need to book you can just turn up on the night, at least 5 minutes before the trials are due to commence. Just mention at the centre that you are here for the swimming club trials.

Date of Next Trials:

Thursday, 3rd February 2022

NOTE: Due to existing members renewing their subscriptions the first trials of 2022 will be in February.
